Arsenal eyeing RB Leipzig midfielder Tyler Adams

The upcoming summer will see Arsenal improving their midfield department.

According to multiple reports emanating from England, Arsenal are eyeing RB Leipzig midfielder Tyler Adams.

The 23-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.

Leipzig spent 2.63 million euros to sign the USA international from New York Red Bulls in the winter of 2019. He has three years left on his current contract which expires in 2025.

The midfielder has featured in 24 matches this term in all competitions.

The 23-year-old is considered to be one of the best midfielders in USA. Adams has also left his mark at the international stage after netting one goal in 22 senior appearances for the USA national team.

His performances have seen him become the target of many European clubs including Arsenal.

Arsenal are looking to sign a midfielder and have identified the 23-year-old as potential transfer target.

The USA international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of midfielder Arteta wants to target in the summer transfer window.


The former New York Red Bulls man will offer the Arsenal boss the freedom to be more flexible with his formations, tactics and team selections.

According to the report, “Arsenal are maintaining a watching brief for RB Leipzig midfielder Tyler Adams. The Athletic says Adams has caught the eye once again after displaying a number of impressive qualities that would suit him well in the middle of the pitch as opposed to down the flanks. Arsenal could be pulling off a shrewd bit of business by transforming Adams into a holding midfielder if he is able to follow in the footsteps of Joshua Kimmich by successfully making the switch. The American utility man has already featured in the role on a handful of occasions for Leipzig this season and has not looked out of place when tasked with keeping things tight as part of a midfield duo.”

A big money bid from Arsenal could tempt Leipzig into selling their prized asset.

The German giants are preparing to sell their midfielder should they receive a massive offer for him.

Good signing for Arsenal?

Undoubtedly, he would be a fantastic recruit for Arsenal.

Adams has all the skillset required to be a success story at Arsenal. Therefore, it makes sense for Arteta to step up his attempts to bring the USA midfielder to Premier League side.

Stylistically, he would be a great fit in Arsenal.

How strong that interest is and whether Arsenal will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
